This is possibly Major David Currie's tank and crew.

Not sure if this photo is correct but close should be:

This Canadian crew of a tank Sherman has a rest before battle in the south of Caen. (May on Adorns, Glass roofs)
July 28th, 1944, Sherman V "Clanky" of the commander of the Squadron C of the major Dave Currie (VC) ., the 29th Recognition Regiment (The South Alberta Regiment) of the 4th Canadian Armoured Division.
Of g in d, Tp G Holstrom, Cpl J Lardner and Tp D Mitchell. Clanky will be destroyed on October 28th, 44 in Bergen worker Zoom lens, by a bomb of 5.5 Canadian Gun fell too short on the back beach of the tank!
